To Big "J" Father, You are Life's Greatest Gift to Me. Memories come flooding back to me as I look back over the years. I want to hold on to you and at the same time watch you fly free... Father, you have such a spirit and character all your own. Always remember my heart is forever here for you. You will always be my father, but I also discovered in you, a rare and precious friend. You have been life's greatest gift to me, and I love you so much. Little "J"
